“Captain Billy is a fantastic guide with decades of knowledge, and sophisticated equipment to find the fish anywhere! He expertly “sets up” the rigs and location to where even a rookie can haul in multiple huge catch. It was the 1st time for most of us to fish on a professional charter and it was NONSTOP fun and action! Captain Billy teaches precise fishing tips that helps you to be successful. He is also very safety-conscious. Thanks to Captain Billy, we caught a large COOLER-FULL of fish.”

“My son and I booked this charter due to the number as well as the high ratings and Captain Billy Rotne didn’t disappoint. He was easy to contact and since the weather was less than favorable, he let us make the decision. We wanted to go. Captain Billy met us at the dock early and was ready. We began by trying to go out around the jetty, but unfortunately due to conditions we had to turn around. The Capt. made the right decision and instead targeted trout and reds in calmer water. Captain Billy put us on fish and by days end we caught in excess of 75 fish. At one point we were nearly catching fish on every cast! If your looking for a friendly, knowledgeable captain who works hard, this is your guy.”

“First time for me and my family and friends going deep sea bay fishing. Captain Billy loaded us up promptly and we head out on the bay for about a 30 mile trip out in the bay. He put us right on the perfect spot. As soon as we cast within minutes the fish were bitting. All five us caught our limit in less than 2 hours time. Cutting edge equipment and boat. He filleted and bagged all our catch. Best fishing experience of my life!!! Recommend Captain Billy to all. If I could give him a bonus star, I would. Thanks Captain Billy.”
